Pumpkin Pie Spice rules the world, and this is a really fun flavor of treat to make, especially in the fall when all things pumpkin, pumpkin pie, and pumpkin pie spice reign supreme.



  • 1 cup dates
  • 1 cup pecans
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • pinch sea salt


  1. Add all of the ingredients to the bowl of your food processor and blend until the nuts are well chopped and a thick “dough” starts to form, about 3-5 minutes of processing. If the ingredients are chopped into super small pieces but the dough isn’t coming together, try adding a teaspoon of water at a time (up to a tablespoon or two) to encourage everything to come together.
  2. When the ingredients are well incorporated, remove the blade from the food processor. Take 1 large tablespoon of the “dough” and roll it into a ball in between your hands. Repeat with remaining dough. Keep the balls in the fridge for up to a month or in the freezer much longer.
